Yanik said that "real pro's" would not use GIMP until it got CMYK suport.

I disagreed, pointing out that there are people who manipulate images for a living, i.e. "real pro's", that do not need CMYK.

You then said that you "think he is referring to designers and photographers in the first place and in that case he is quite right".

Yanik himself had made so such distinction, which lead to me asking if that meant you considered those image manipulation professionals who are not "designers and photographers" not be be "real pro's".

Finally I said 'GIMP does not require CMYK support for "real pro's" to use it, but that some people require CMYK support in order from GIMP to be useful to them.' This was an attempt to point out the CMYK criticism is a poor one. It's like a DTP user moaning that Word lacks a vital DTP function. GIMP is not aimed at pre-press users, its not a fair critique that GIMP lacks a vital pre-press function. Or to use a car anology, its like a Land Rover owner complaining his Maclaren F1 does not have four wheel drive.
